I just went to Taiwan for the first time and since I was there for 7 days, we decided to visit the beautiful Taichung.
From Taipei HSR Station, we took the HSR to Taichung HSR. Once we were at Taichung HSR, we took a taxi to Hotel 7 Taichung which cost us NT$320. Read how to get to Hotel 7 below from different places at the end of the article.
The lobby had a really nice & clean look, with a huge sitting area in the centre of it all. The check-in process was really easy and fast, and we were even given 2 free Häagen-Dazs mini cups (100ml) vouchers to redeem when we checked out the next day.
We stayed in the Loft Double Room which was 33 square metres and because it was two levelled, the room had a very high ceiling and it felt very spacious. The living room was huge, with a sofa, chairs, and a television. The sofa could even be used as a sofa bed with a surcharge.
At the kitchen area, I was surprised to even find a microwave as it was very helpful in making some food we brought back from the night market hot. There was also a fridge, tea and coffee at the minibar.
The queen-sized bed was huge, and we woke up to a magnificent view of the city in the morning. The curtains could be drawn automatically with a press of a button.
As for the bathroom, it had full amenities like toothbrush, comb, shaver and hairdryer, and even had a bathtub inside.
On the 9th floor, there was a huge common area called the Giant’s Pantry. It was furnished with gym equipments, foosball table, table hockey, soft drinks & coffee here for guests to enjoy.
The outdoor area was also really nice for you to just sit back, relax and enjoy the fresh air in the mornings.
The best part of staying at Hotel 7 is that Fengjia Night Market is just a 5-minute walk away! For dinner, we walked to the night market to eat street food like sweet potato fries, big wrap small sausage, beef cubes, etc.
After resting the night at Hotel 7, wake up to their buffet spread located just across the lobby at level 1.
Some items in their buffet include a salad station, bread station, drinks, sweet potato balls, chicken cheese bread, etc.
They also had mains like noodles, fried rice, and small bites. We got to enjoy our breakfast while people watching as we sat close to the windows.
Overall, we really enjoyed our short stay at this lovely hotel. If you have any questions you would like to ask me about our stay, feel free to drop me a DM on Instagram (@wafflenessa)!
